I’ve been finalizing my travel wardrobe (post coming soon) and trying to wrap up a bunch of tasks before my London trip. Not to mention getting ready for Halloween. 🎃 Our neighborhood is a trick-or-treat Destination, and we usually get between 400-600 kids knocking on our door. The Young Cousins (well, in their early 30’s) are going to come over to help me hand out candy. We may do a group costume, stay tuned…
I recently included this top in my recommendations for cool palettes. But this spruce color is also found in the Autumn palette. Here it’s styled for an Autumn, with warm-toned accessories.
More spruce tops & sweaters:
For the last few years, I’ve had an on-again-off-again relationship with a good night’s sleep. And these last few months, the additional stress of Doug’s illness and passing really did a number on my sleep cycle. I may fall asleep but will pop awake after an hour or so, and not be able to drift back off. Or, it takes me hours to relax enough to fall asleep at all.
I follow all of the “good sleep hygiene” practices: getting regular exercise, going to bed at the same time every night, avoiding heavy evening meals, putting away the electronics at least an hour before bed. My doctor recommended Melatonin, but it had no effect. Cannabis gummies knock me right out, but I can’t travel with those. 😜
I’ve never been much of a tea drinker, but a friend suggested I give chamomile tea a try.
A few weeks ago I picked this up at the supermarket, and have been enjoying a cup lately in the evenings. To my surprise, it really does help me relax and fall asleep more easily. And I’ve actually come to look forward to my nightly “cuppa.” I’ll be bringing a stash of these tea bags along with me.
Have you found anything that makes a real difference when it comes to sleep?
